How to Decorate a Chandelier with Flowers for Spring
We’re sharing how to decorate a chandelier with flowers for Spring today!
A few years ago, we created a Spring Inspired Dining Room and used Bridal Bush branches from our yard to decorate the chandelier.
We’ve previously used greenery in our chandelier for Christmas. So, I thought it would be fun to decorate our chandelier with flowers for Spring too.
Decorating for Spring with Flowers and Branches…
Using greenery or flowers when decorating for any holiday is an easy way to create a festive feel in your home. It’s also a great way to transition from one season to the next.
You can pick up faux flowers, garland, and dried greenery from your local craft supply store. You can also use fresh greenery or branches from your yard.
Keep in mind, if you choose to use something from your yard, you’ll need to make sure it has been well cleaned and is free from any pests.
Also, the number of branches or greenery you’ll need for this project will depend on the size of your chandelier.
Here’s a look at how to decorate a chandelier with flowers for Spring…
*This post was updated for Spring 2022
Start with a clean chandelier that is free from dust, dirt, and debris.
Using caution and care, layer the Bridal Bush stems or stems of your choice through each chandelier arm.
Depending on the type of greenery you chose, you may need to mist the stems to keep them looking fresh. You can also water stems by using floral tubes.
Allow a few pieces to slightly drop to add a bit of whimsy.
Make sure the stems are not too heavy, you don’t want to cause any damage to your chandelier or ceiling. You also want to make sure the stems have been properly secured with string or floral wire.
Keep in mind ALL parts of your flowers, stems, and leaves should be completely clear of any lightbulbs and/or electrical wires.
Continue tucking and layering the Bridal Bush stems or stems of your choice at the base of the chandelier until you’ve achieved a look you love.
This is definitely one of those super simple decorating ideas that makes a big impact and doesn’t take very long to create at all.
Fresh greenery and Bridal Bush stems like these will probably only last about 2 days (or less) unless you use the floral tubes to keep them watered.
So, you’ll want to plan something like this for a special occasion.
Spring is a fabulous time to make an ordinary day, extraordinary. So, pull out your good china and enjoy!
We hope this post on how to decorate a chandelier with flowers for Spring has given you a bit of inspiration! I can’t believe it’s already here!
Let us know how you plan to decorate this year! Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
Seeing all the flowers in your post uesterday was my favorite part. I dont have a Bridal Bush in my yard but I can look for something similar at Hobby Lobby. Then I can use it all season long.
Sarah, I’m sure Hobby Lobby has a lot of great options and your right with Easter coming so early this year you’ll be able to enjoy this flower crown into May! Send me a picture if you decide to do this, CoCo
Wow CoCo – this is one time we love drama LOL! The flowers look like a floral crown over the dining table. It is such a soft and pretty look and perfect for Easter dinner. Thanks for sharing your technique. Hugs for a fab day!
ha ha you guys give me the giggles because as you both know drama gives me sweaty pits! Thankfully this easy project could be nominated for the drama free zone which would easily be called CoCo’s comfort zone 🙂 Sending you both big hugs, CoCo
I never realized it was so easy to make a flower crown, CoCo. I have a smaller chandelier in our kitchen area so I’m going to give it a go with eucalyptus and peonies I think. Thanks, Ashley
Oh my gosh, Ashley they are super easy to make! I think the eucalyptus and peonies mix would be really pretty too. Hugs, CoCo
Look at all those pretty flower stems! Are they pliable Coco or do you have to soak them to make them bend like that? Thanks
That is a great question, Bonnie, I brought these in shortly after a rain storm so they were pretty pliable. Keep in mind you’ll need to make sure they’re free from any pests before you bring them inside to use if you’re using something like this from your yard which might also make them pliable depending on what you use. Let me know if you have any other questions, CoCo
This just looks so fresh and pretty, what a sweet idea I love it.xx
Thank you so much, Janette, I really appreciate it! Hope your week is filled with all good things, CoCo
So pretty, CoCo!! I love how whimsical it looks…almost like out of a fairy tale. Someday I’ll own a pretty vintage chandelier to decorate 🙂 Also, all your gorgeous flowers have me longing for your beautiful weather! Thanks for sharing a taste of spring today! Much love.
I really appreciate it, Rachel, thanks so much for your sweet words. It was fun to put together even if it only lasted a few days. Bridal Bush has such a fragrant scent. I NEVER imagined in a million years when I was in graduate school in a TINY apartment in a not-so-great area of town surrounded by family hand-me-downs I would live in a house I loved. It felt like a total pipe dream. I can definitely say all the struggles are worth it though all these years later. You’ll get there, I promise! Wishing all good things for you today and everyday, CoCo
TWO DAYS OR LESS?! Kudos to you for even doing that. I’m all about the faker than fake so I don’t have to fool with it for at least a month. Love this idea though. Maybe if I had some super special blogging friends come over I’d give them the royal treatment with real flowers?! Maybe. 😉 pinned
I hear you, lady! The bridal bush is so beautiful but those flowers are delicate and don’t seem to last very long. S was just asking me the other day if I knew of some fake plants that looked real for the porch because the prices at the garden center this year have doubled! I’m so thankful faux flowers have come a long way they make a world of difference ❤ Big hugs, CoCo
This looks fantastic! Those branches and blooms are just the right for your chandelier! So pretty and fresh for a special occasion during Spring! Blessings, Donna
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words, Donna, I really appreciate it! It felt like a secret garden in our dining room for a few days which was positively magical and definitely helped us to get into the mood for Spring. hope your weekend is a special one, CoCo
I like the daintiness of the florals you used. We don’t have anything in bloom so I need to go shopping!
Thank you, Linda! We have a bridal bush, knock-out roses, iris, and a crepe myrtle that bloom in our yard but not much else. Everything is either green or brown in Florida it seems. I’m always excited when people share their flowering pear trees, cherry blossoms, and other seasonal branches. They’re so pretty! Hope you find what you’re looking for. I love all the spring stuff that is out right now! Hugs, CoCo
Such a great idea to give it a different look. Thanks for sharing!
I really appreciate it, Pauline, thank you so much! Hope you have the best spring season, CoCo
I absolutely ADORE this idea, CoCo! The flowers not only add a touch of whimsy but I think a wee bit of romance too! Such a lovely way to display one of my favorites!
Thank you bunches, Christine! It was so much fun to place flowers in the dining room chandelier for springtime. I’m always trying to think of ways we can transition ideas from one season to the next so I’m excited this one actually came together. Hope your Spring is a special one, CoCo
I’ve always decorated my chandelier for Christmas but never really thought about decorating for spring. Thanks for the lovely idea CoCo.
You are so welcome, Kim! Christmas is such a short season so we’re constantly looking for ways to capture that magic during other holidays too. This flower crown didn’t last very long because the flowers are super delicate but it was well worth the effort, even for a magical few days. Big hugs, CoCo
What a wonderful idea! So lovely!
I really appreciate it, Lynne, thank you so much! Hope you have the best week and see you at the party, CoCo
love this CoCo found you on Niky’s features! Laura in Colorado
Thank you so much for stopping by, Laura, I really appreciate it! Hope your day is filled with all good things, CoCo
I do this all the time! Especially love doing it around Christmastime. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen
It’s such a pretty way to celebrate the season, Kathleen! Hope you have the best week. Big hugs, CoCo
Love this idea CoCo. I have decorated our chandelier for Christmas, but I have not for spring or summer. You have inspired me to see what I can come up with for Spring now. Thank you for sharing with Whimsy Home Wednesday!
I love how you brought the outdoors in with this beautiful chandelier garland! I am excited to feature your post at this week’s Tuesday Turn About link party. Thank you so much for sharing!
Could you link to your beautiful chandelier?
Thanks so much for asking about the light fixture, Brenna. We got it several years ago at Ballard Designs and it was called the Talia Chandelier. It looks like it’s no longer available on the Ballard website but I wanted to share the name with you in case you might be able to find something similar. Hope this helps, CoCo
